TEN… Strangers are lured to an island. By dinner at NINE… one guest is dead.
By EIGHT… the next morning, a second body is found. Will any of the SEVEN… survive the next day?

Premiering in 1943 before transferring to Broadway where it ran for 426 performances, And Then There Were None marks Agatha Christie’s arrival as a playwright. Laced with wartime paranoia the original stage adaptation of And Then There Were None would later became a prototype for the Hollywood ‘slasher’ genre.

Agatha Christie is a best selling author with over four billion copies of her novels sold worldwide. She also wrote twenty-seven plays including Verdict, Witness for the Prosecution and The Mousetrap, which has been in constant production in the West End for over sixty years.
